what i wore // leggings & tights

November 7, 2012

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine. No nonsense tights and leggings can be found at food and drug stores as well as mass retail stores.


Even though I live in southeast Texas, for some strange reason I have more sweaters in my closet than anything else. I get way more excited about fall fashion than any other season, so I didn’t hesitate to sign up for this opportunity to try out a pair of No nonsense leggings and tights. I may have sweaters in abundance, but I don’t have much in the way of dresses, skirts, or pants (other than jeans) that are cool-weather appropriate, and leggings and tights can extend the life of warm weather clothes.

I didn’t get to choose the color of items, and I guess I was expecting black, but what I got was denim leggings. Jeggings? No, I can’t use that word. But anyway, these aren’t the kind that you can wear just like jeans, they’re the kind that need to be covered around the bum area, if you know what I mean.

shirt: H&M // sweater: Target // leggings: No nonsense // shoes: Blowfish // necklace: A Cup of Green Ginger (Etsy – similar here) // belt: Target // bag: Fossil

I wore this outfit to a family reunion and it was perfect. For most of the time I had the sweater off, but a storm blew through with a cool breeze so I did get to wear it some.

For fun I decided to put Meredith in her denim leggings too. She didn’t get that we were supposed to be posing though.

On Meredith:

shirt: babyGap // leggings: Target // shoes: StrideRite

A perfect fall outfit that I will be wearing again.

Like I said earlier, I didn’t get to choose the colors I received which is how I ended up with red tights. I am racking my brain right now to see if I can think of a single other red clothing item I own, and I can’t do it. Red is just not my color. However! Christmas is near, and red is a Christmas color. Red also goes well with gray and black, two colors I have plenty of. And thus I put together a winter outfit that I never would have worn without the tights because of the dreariness factor.

dress: Banana Republic // sweater: Banana Republic // tights: No nonsense // belt: Target // boots: Nine West

I only got one good picture of this outfit because it was way too hot to actually wear it anywhere right now. I just hope it gets cold enough around Christmas time to wear this.

I really recommend the No nonsense leggings & tights. They felt really soft and well made, the sizing chart was right on (for me), and the leggings held up well all day. Even better is that you can get them at drugstores and grocery stores and they’re super affordable. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying some more colors.

    I would definitely wear both those outfits. I actually would like access to your closet at this point. :) I love Meredith’s clothes, too…she is the cutest. (And I want to get that shirt for Eisley!)

    If you actually saw my closet you’d probably be pretty disappointed. It’s a work in progress for sure! But all the same, thanks. :)

    From kapachino:

    I love it too! It’s old though. And there is a tiny seam that is ripped on the top, but it’s covered by the sweater here. Keepin’ it real. :)

    I love the second outfit so much! The red leggings just make it pop. I own red leggings and I just realized the other day that I own not one red sweater, not two red sweaters, but three.

    From Suburban Sweetheart:

    Love both of these outfits! The red tights are something I’d never buy, either, but they look so cute dressed up this way, with just a little pop of color at your knees. Well done!

    I love the red tights! Super great outfit you have. I have started to wear leggings around the house post workout/shower and it is rather nice! I have a bright purple pair of tights and some green ones, too so I’ll need to start incorporating these into my look. Thanks for the review!
